On the 17 of Jan I wrote in the forum that OWS should have a representitive to run for congress in each congessional district in the US. On the Ballets the Candidates would not be listed by name but listed only by OWS Rep. Any promotions would be centralized becuase they goal is the same in every district in the US. So Campaigning would not be necessary just awarness on the goals. And the focused goal should be narrowed to the elimanation of Lobbiest in our government and that the Piggy back of insignificant bills on crucial bill proposals. I proposed that this focuss be establishd and that there would be a means to accomplish this. And that the OWS form Commities to screen the selected Congressional Candidates. And with the Donations that have been recieved that All the fees accociated with Appling to Run for the office should be paid. In the article I volunteered to run for congess. I recieved back alot of comments concerning this. I was called a self promoter. And that I may not be as qulified as a seasoned politician. I was told that there are a lot of great polititicians already out there. Alot of talk about the the Democratic party. I began to see how really aligned this movement is.
The fact of the matter is that both parties are quilty. And isnt that the point. I got a comment concerning how good John Kerry is. Well I have news for you. John Kerry's wife is Teresa Heinz aire to the Heinz fortune as in Ketchup. I have a personal friend that knows the couple and has spent a lot of time with them. Neither one of them have worked a full day in there lives. The fact of the matter is that unless we do this the movement will acheive nothing but alot of Radical views and groups of people being thrown in jail from time to time. Both parties have blood on their hands.
And yes I am suppose I am a self promoter. I do not have a huge corporation filling my pockets and backing me.
